What Teachers Say

Steve wrote:
"From that point on the children performed not for me, but for Bodhi. My fear of creating who I was as Bodhi immediately slipped away---I had not thought that out; but something else magical completely outside of us took over... What an experience."

Dale Katzen wrote:
"I continue to see more and more avenues of use for these puppets as part of the lessons and the life of the classroom. They enhance the atmosphere and bring such delight."

Toni wrote:
"There is a strong argument for the use of puppets in education especially given that recent papers indicate that learning is enhanced by spontaneity, emotion and play. This is vital to my teaching communication. I am so excited!"

Chonita wrote:
"Diane has been part of our spelling lessons all week and today I started without her. "Isn't Diane coming today?' I heard three different students say. I couldn't believe what I was hearing from one of my "tough guys." I can't believe the attitude of my students. They are different. They are excited and I'm excited. I've share with my principal, staff, and friends about your class and what I'm experiencing now."
